:) Ordered my 2015 Mustang Ecoboost Premium Convertible - 6 speed, on 3/23 and had it now for 2 weeks. Love it. Had Ford Racing Borla Cat Back Exhaust installed by Ford (to keep the warranty intact), before delivery. Thinking about upgrading air intake and adding a tune. Opinions?

More Pics of Marvin!

"Marvin's" has the Premium Package with Ceramic Seats and the wheels are 19" Magnetic Matt Finish to match the color of the car.

The picture of the exhaust is the Ford Racing Exhaust by Borla - Sport Type.

Ford ran a Dyno and the hp is currently at 350 +/- without upgrading the air intake or a tune.

I love this pony!:D

Sweet, looking all pretty with the top down. for those horsepower figures are they to the crank or to the wheels and sae corrected? I'd like to see what kinda numbers you would get from a intake and tune.

Nice ride! I have to wait mine till November but i hope it is worth the wait. If I have understood right I should get the upgraded Ford synch 3 information system ? Are all 2016 models having this?

Mine does not have the new Sync system. It has the same as before. I had a 2011 Ford Edge with the system and was familiar with it. That's the main reason I ordered my car. I wanted everything on it I was used to. The new system seems to be nice though.

Ford installed the Borla exhaust. I have not yet decided on a tune. We added the exhaust to the purchase order so that the warranty would remain intact.

Arghhh! Bandaid Please!

Well! They all took bets on how quickly I would get a ticket or need the body shop! So, body shop wins after only about 3 months. Driving out of the parking garage the gate closed and did not bounce back! The driver's side of the car has to have the door replaced and some minor repair to the back fender. The worst part is- 2 weeks in the body shop while driving a loaner - Toyota Camry. :| the good news - whole new paint job!

While there- installing the Escort 9500ci - pics in a few days!

Now at two weeks! Just to let you all know- Magnetic is considered a " Custom Color" and when you have 1 part of your car painted, Ford is going to repaint your entire car. That's cool! But, that also means, they are going to hold your car hostage FOREVER!!!!!! To make it all better I have order a new CAI. Please check out my post regarding performance upgrades and give me your advise. In the meantime, I am just gonna putt around in my Camry.

Don't feel bad my car has been in the shop for about 2 weeks because a storm came through and blew rocks and debris off of the hanger where I work. This shattered almost all the windows, chipped the paint, and left several dents all over my car. Ironically I have the magnetic color too, so my car is going to be in the shop for another two weeks.

I really need my car back, It's bad when you think a Nissan rouge is pretty quick. Man I miss my car. Hopefully you'll get yours back soon.

Thanks for the share on the exhaust i have Mustang Ecoboost Premium Convertible if you dont mind had a few question before i order my new exhaust. 1, do you get any droning at gear or better or at highway speeds when feathering the gas? 2. Do you have the sport model or the touring model on the exhaust?, 3, how much did th dear charge you? and last is it loud or would u say 25% increase over the stock. Thanks for any info you can give me, Jrock
